FULL SHOW: 6 years since Mike Brown’s murder

Several homes in the city of Baltimore, Maryland have been leveled after a reportedly powerful gas explosion, killing one and injuring several other people. RT America’s Faran Fronczak reports from the scene. Meanwhile, Lebanon’s prime minister announced the resignation of his government, saying the devastation from last week’s port blast was the result of "endemic corruption." This comes as protesters have stormed government buildings, demanding accountability. RT's Paula Slier reports from Beirut. In Belarus, around 3,000 people were detained on election day after opposition supporters claimed the election had been rigged. Protesters have been beaten and journalists detained amid the re-election of President Alexander Lukashenko, who has been in power since 1994. RT’s Daniel Hawkins reports from outside the Belarusian embassy in Moscow, which also experienced tension Sunday. Plus, six years after Mike Brown’s murder at the hands of police in Ferguson, Missouri, police violence against Black people remains a nationwide point of contention. “Watching the Hawks” co-hosts Tyrel Ventura and Ameshia Cross discuss.
